In dicot plants, a new layer of xylem is produced by the secondary growth system, the cambium, each year (or several times each year in some tropical trees) forming a new growth ring in trunks and branches. Xylem in foliage is produced by primary growing points in buds. As water evaporates from the foliage (this process is called transpiration) through openings in leaves called stomata, it pulls adjoining water molecules with it. This pulling action helps draw water up the trunk and into the leaves.

The tree usually expends energy moving sugars, growth regulators, proteins, and essential elements up and down the phloem to other locations in the plant. Once sugar arrives at a location, it is used to carry out normal processes or it is stored. It is stored as starch in the network of living cell contents in the xylem called the symplast. Starch is a chain of sugars linked together. Starch is considered the money, or the energy, in the tree bank.
